Smaller transducers, probably OK for a while.

Big suckers like the 1kw+ models... they come with a tag saying "do not operate this out of water, it will damage it" or words to that effect.

There was a threa not long ago discussing transducers out of the water...
 Older models, few yrs back plus now, get hot and break down /fail. They , like modern head units can shut off the transducer.
My old huminbird I only use for gps, althu has no transducer , is turned off.

 Apparently as mentioned here Garmin and I think most brands automatically shut it off  now.

I think it is good practice to simply save your days track (if wish to) close down the units along with killing and tilting the engine up, close the clears windscreen etc, when stopped at the ramp, before getting the trailer.

Any Lowrance owners with feedback on Insight Genesis? Does it add any detail to NZ charts?
